wet egg hunt

I did manage to scrap a couple of pages last week. Of course it took me pretty much all week to get it done since I was working on getting both of the kids rooms picked up and ready for them when they are done hanging with Nana and Papa.

This sketch is from May 2011 Pagemaps. I saw it and knew I had to use it for something and since the Easter pictures were hanging on my desk, I used them.

Here is my take on that sketch. I used all the bright colors since Kira's coat is just as bright as the papers! Same reason for using all those butterflies... they are in her coat. This is when she did her egg hunt at the Rec Center. I used DCWV Spring Stack paper for this layout. The letters were attached to chipboard and then I put glossy accents over the top of them to give them the wet look. Thought it worked well for the title!

I can see that sketch being used more over the years. It is a great one for all the layouts I do with tons of pictures!! Thanks for looking!!

I need to get the second page to Alex's Egg Hunt pictures posted too. I think it is still on my camera. Maybe tomorrow... after I get back from Kelly's Roast Beef!! Yup we are headed down to Peabody, Massachusetts and we don't even have Alex with us to get a haircut. Hubby has some business down there so I am tagging along for the lunch. yummy... roast beef. See you then!!


  1. Beautiful colors! Diggin that ginormous circle! And love me some Pagemaps! Hope to find time to at least plan some pages soon. We have a huge amazing charity crop down here in October (it's annual), and I have no motivation to try to plan anything. But I'm hosting one at my house in August, so maybe I can use that time to plan out something...

  2. That pagemap is excellent, and you rocked it with your interpretation and pictures! Guess what I'll be doing until I can somehow find some space in our tiny house for me to scrap? I'm actually going to tackle the very large task of getting ALL the stuff that's peripheral to pictures I've taken, such as concert tickets or receipts or whatever, putting dates to all of that stuff, storing the stuff by dates in huge envelopes that I altered, then noting the folder on my Alienware of the pics related to the peripheral stuff. Taylan's almost 10, I am way behind, but this task is also why I have a mental block about scrapping alot of the photos I've taken because it will nag me in the back of my head to include one of those peripheral items. Did any of that make sense?
